Editors: Shurun Tan and Saibun Tjuatja


◈ Special Issue Information:

This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in remote sensing theory, novel applications and methods, and innovations in sensor and system. The aim is to provide both translational and interdisciplinary links between researchers/practitioners to further advance remote sensing research and its applications. Original research and novel application papers in all aspects of microwave and optical remote sensing are welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Random media scattering theory and computation model
  • Drone-borne microwave and optical remote sensing system
  • Novel remote sensing techniques and systems utilizing signal of opportunity
  • Wideband radiometry and its applications in environmental remote sensing
  • Artificial intelligence and data science in remote sensing
  • Novel applications of remote sensing technology at local and global scales, including agriculture, sustainability, natural hazard mitigation, water resource management, climate change research, and epidemics
